    Alessio was amazing! He was a great tour guide and we had enough time at each location and it really was worth it. While the suspension bridge scared the crazy out of me, it was still a must do. Thank you!

    Greg was very punctual in picking us up. Small group so moved pretty quickly. Lovely weather so made it a great day. Express entry to the bridge so he was on the ball to get us there before the queues started. Grouse mountain was lovely and we had adequate time to do everything. Lumberjack show was pretty funny which wasn't expected. Lot of interesting facts shared along the way. Called the day before to confirm pick up spot as we were staying in airbnb and not a hotel. They were able to move our pick up to a closer hotel without any fuss. Very professional service via phone and driver was great. Van was very clean and he was swift to keep everything efficient. Driver happily dropped us to granville market on our way back and gave us some great tips!

    Landsea Tours picked us up at our hotel lobby right on time. Thanks to 'skip the line' access we were able to visit the fishery, the exciting Capilano bridges and the Grouse Mountain (to see the bears and to take the ski chairs to get much better views). James, our competent guide and driver was always around to give us further info and take a photo or two of us! We had an excellent day thanks to Viator, Landsea Tours and (a bonus) glorious sunshine 21°C

    Great company that knows how to see all of the sights in such a compressed amount of time. Super comfort and convenient! Driver was super knowledgeable and fun!

    Alesso was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the sites he took us to and explained what to expect; what order in which to see each exhibit; how long each exhibit would take, etc. We ran on schedule. As we traveled throughout the city he shared with us the city's history, the cost of living and other facts. We totally enjoyed the tour.

    This place was much nicer than we had expected. The bridge was both a little scary and fun to cross, and the beautiful forest on the other side made the crossing worth it. I felt like a kid up in a treehouse and could have stayed in there all day. However, our next stop was Grouse Mountain which offered a fantastic view and a funny Lumberjack Show.

    It was a great experience. The visit to the fish hatchery was too fast and we didn't have enough time to learn more about it before being rushed off to Grouse Mountain. Otherwise, a great day and highly recommend it.

    We enjoyed spending time on Grouse mountain and exploring the Capilano Bridge area! Noah was an excellent guide! I would personally skip the Salmon Hatchery and would’ve liked more time at the Capilano Bridge!

    This trio is the perfect amount of time at three sites! The driver was great and we had a good amount of time at each location.

    Excellent day trip. Our guide was Bazil, and he was excellent. Being a third generation Vancouverite, he knew all about Vancouver, it's history, how it works and everything. He picked us up right on time. He made the most of our day. He planned and timed our excursion perfectly. He allotted enough time at each location to make the most of our day Suspension Bridge Park was fun. We were able to do all three activities there, the suspension bridge, the treetop walk, and the cliff walk. Grouse Mtn was great. You ride the condola up and back. We were able to see the grizzly bears and listen to the bear talk, view the raptor show, and view a movie about the two resident grizzly bears. We made it back to town in good time and Bazil dropped us off at a convenient location instead of the hotel as we requested. He drove very carefully and I felt very safe with him. This is a great tour and great value.

    Our family really enjoyed the tour. Our favorite was the cliff walk, great views and many beautiful picture taking opportunities. The day we went to Grouse mountain was extremely foggy, but still very enjoyable. Omid even took us to the dam for more walking and pictures. He was very accommodating for drop off as well.
    • Submitted 03 Jul 2019
    The walk across was not as bad as expected. It is fun and certainly worth doing. Once across there is the treetop adventure. Nature lovers will definitely love it. After you walk back across the bridge there is the cliff walk that leads to more information and beauty.

    Got more than we expected . I would recommend this tour for anyone looking for something to do in Vancouver
